Just tucking into some delightful sandwiches at The Mad Hatters Tea Party Fundraiser this afternoon at the lovely Sibson Inn which has been sponsored by Revamp Limited. There’s a beautifully big marquee here at this country location on The Great North Road...and inside a host of goodies ready to eat. Each table has been beautifully fitted out with a different theme from Alice in Wonderland. There's a host of things going on too to keep the kids occupied as this is who it is really aimed at anyway. We have a juggler and a wandering Mad Hatter card magician,

Out & About – Sunday Travels

2018-02-13T21:13:56+00:00 February 13th, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids, Summer|

It's another Sunday with not a lot to do and for some, it's usually a walk around the town centre with the same-old, same-old. It's time for a change. So, We Love Peterborough decided to take a drive out and see where we could go that wasn't very far but something new to do. We piled into the car and decided to take a drive towards the Deepings umming and ahhing as to whether the Deepings were classed as being in the Peterborough region.... we decided that it was a 'yes', even if some parts of it are in Lincolnshire, but

It’s Panto Time

Key Theatre panto 2017 Sleeping Beauty Well what a surprise this was. I've not been to a pantomime for a good few years (over 20 years to be honest) and after receiving an invite to go, I thought I'd give it a go. No kids in tow as they have all flown the nest, but I was open to see what it was all about these days. The Key Theatre looks a treat all decorated up for Christmastime and on entering the foyers there's kiddy choices straight in view... sparkling whirling light toys as well as plenty

What a great night we had tonight at Trapp'd. We were invited back to try their second escape game Madame Curio’s Cirque Delirium, and oh my gosh, what a surprise we had in there. People are going missing and you need to work out why. You’ll step back into a fairground-circus theme giving you a fun-filled evening without a doubt. It’s great for all ages and definitely one for the kids. You’ll be game playing, counting, hooking ducks, searching for the smallest of clues, anddeciphering codes... it’s all about teamwork as well as individual challenges. So why not jump on

Get your skates on!

2017-11-26T14:41:48+00:00 November 26th, 2017|Christmas, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids|

We caught a few of you skating today - were you there? Ice-skating is going well at Van Hage today. Have you been yet? They've had their ice-skating rink opened for a little while now and people are taking up the challenge to come out wit their kids and give it a go. It's great as each session lasts 45 minutes so plenty of time for a workout if you need one and the kids I'm sure will be exhausted by then. For the smaller nippers they've got penguins that can be hired which will keep them

Wildwood Meal & Movie Night

2017-09-22T15:04:30+00:00 September 21st, 2017|Great For Kids, Uniqueness|

We decided to try #SomethingDifferent tonight and booked a couple of seats at Wildwood for their #MealAndMovie night. We dined at 7pm which gave us plenty of time to eat before the film started at 8:45pm. You get a nice 3-course meal of shared starters, a good choice of mains (grills, pizza, pasta dishes) and a dessert. The service was extremely good and our meal came promptly. The cinema comes after your meal...However, tonight was a bit unique as there was originally a booking for 21 in the cinema who had cancelled! That meant we actually had our own #PrivateViewing... and got to start the
